Lake McKenzie 20km Hike #15

10636258_715980451825684_2583485308637997144_n

Another Awesome Adventure Day and Community Hike was had on Fraser Island on Nov 1st, with a 20km return walk from Kingfisher Bay to Lake McKenzie in 2:59mins mins return! 2,200 calories ✔

I had 26 Awesome hikers this time, with different levels of fitness, some of the guys were also on my 4 Week Program and everyone in attendance did Excellent!
I was really proud of all their personal achievements as this is one tough challenge!

10628111_790925017620817_1617094661538545429_nI also had Greg Waite the ex President of Trail Running Qld who had come up especially from Brisbane for the hike, which was very exciting. Greg certainly knows his stuff and is very experienced when it comes to trail running and trail events so it was amazing to have him along and lovely to chat to.

Everyone was thoroughly briefed, had well over 2L of water (this is my requirement on all hikes) and I had purifying tablets if they needed more water at Lake McKenzie plus I also printed out and read the Dingo Safety rules and what to do if you are approached by one. It’s best to always be fully aware and well informed.

IMG_3237The temperature was warm with summer approaching so we thoroughly enjoyed a dip in the magical Lake McKenzie for a refreshing cool down.

Lake McKenzie - has an area of 150 hectares and is just over 5 metres (16 ft) in depth. The beach sand of Lake McKenzie is nearly pure silica. It is a perched lake sitting on top of compact sand and vegetable matter 100 metres (330 ft) above sea level.

Some of us stayed overnight and enjoyed two more hikes the following morning.
– 7km stroll Z Force Commando School and McKenzie Jetty

During World War Two, the area near McKenzie’s Jetty was used by the Services Reconnaissance Department (popularly known as “Z Special Unit”) as a special forces training camp – the Fraser Commando School. Thousands of soldiers were trained here because the conditions were similar to those found on Pacific Islands where the Japanese were fought. Lake McKenzie was used for parachute training and the wreck of the Maheno was used for explosive demolitions practice.

Visitors to the site of the Fraser Commando School today can still see various relics of its military past including armour plates used to test armour piercing explosive charges and weapons and a concrete relief map of Singapore Harbour used as an aid in operations planning.

– 3km hike to the Lookout and Dundonga Creek then back via the beach.

More info on these walks here.  We also ran into our mate Rango on the barge who took us on our 90km challenge ! Can’t wait to go back again!

90km Fraser Island Great Walk in 2.5days!

WOW!!10648856_10152800862367277_5495370189772132261_o

What an awesome five day Adventure on Fraser Island!!!
We walked the 90km Fraser Island Great Walk in just 2.5 days!
(Myself, Carol, Susie & Tash – the Awesome Foursome!)

Starting at Dilli Village 6:30am on Friday morning, we trail walked through the amazing surrounds to Happy Valley by Sunday lunch 12noon! Staying at Lake Wabby via Central Station the first night on the track and Valley of the Giants the second night.

1795218_10152800835797277_9031225481823971146_oA big thank you to RANGO our support crew for looking after us and bringing the supplies into remote areas each day to ‘Rango’s Angels!’  (bedding, tents, food, clothes & BEER!)
We couldn’t have done this sensational achievement without you and your awesome jokes! (I don’t get it?)

A big thanks also to Carol for her excellent organisation skills with the trip / accommodation plus her vehicle got smashed and another vehicle pulling out the week prior, so with some quick genius work from her we still pulled the trip off! Really appreciated by all involved with the epic recovery and two new support 4WD’s!

Best Adventure to date I think, just absolutely breath takingly beautiful and challenging the whole way with nonstop hills, soft sand, and magical nature to immerse yourself in – eucalyptus woodland, rainforests, sand blows /dunes and pristine lakes!

1st day was 42km a trail marathon, day two 26.5km – 29km, day three 16.5km straight to the bar at Happy Valley for a burger and beers!

We saw a few animals – three dingos, a few goanna’s, lots of butterflies, I nearly ran over a small black snake, and an owl followed us for about 5km plus a dingo even tried to eat my dencorub!

Carol & I also took a power pack so we could charge up the iphones to use runkeeper over the few days.

I burnt 9,445 calories during the week!

Fraser Island –  is a heritage-listed island located along the southern coast of Queensland, Australia, approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi) north of Brisbane. Its length is about 120 kilometres (75 mi) and its width is approximately 24 kilometres (15 mi). It was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1992. The island is considered to be the largest sand island in the world at 1840 km². It is also Queensland’s largest island, Australia’s sixth largest island and the largest island on the East Coast of Australia.

The Maheno - is the most famous of Fraser Island’s wrecks and has become a landmark attraction. Built in 1905, the SS Maheno was one of the first turbine-driven steamers. She plied a regular route between Sydney and Auckland until she was commissioned as a hospital ship in Europe during World War One. She also served in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea.

In 1935, she and her sister ship the Oonah were sold to Japan for scrap.
The rudders of the boats were removed and they were being towed to Japan. When they reached Queensland Waters, a cyclonic storm snapped the tow chain and the Maheno drifted helplessly onto Fraser Island’s ocean beach.

Eli Creek – the largest creek on the eastern beach of Fraser Island, pours up to four million litres of clear, fresh water into the ocean every hour.

Lake McKenzie - has an area of 150 hectares and is just over 5 metres (16 ft) in depth. The beach sand of Lake McKenzie is nearly pure silica. It is a perched lake sitting on top of compact sand and vegetable matter 100 metres (330 ft) above sea level.

Lake Boomanjin – Another perched lake on the island is  which at 200 hectares in size, is the largest perched lake in the world. In total there are 40 perched lakes on the island, half of all known lakes of this kind on the planet. Lake Boomanjin is fed by two creeks that pass through a wallum swamp where it collects tannins which tint the water red.

Lake Wabby - is the deepest lake on the island, at 12 metres (39 ft) in depth and also the least acidic which means it has the most aquatic life of all the lakes….. More info here.

WOW AGAIN!! I’ve already planned the next few hikes over there in my head, just can’t get enough of the place!!

Enzo's Against Submission Hervey Bay

SUBMISSION AGAINST DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION – MCU-141028
Development Application Seeking Development Permit for Material Change of Use
– Food and Drink Outlet and ancillary Function Facility; and Shop (Outdoor sport and recreation equipment hire and associated retail goods) over Land described as Lot 219 on SP166253, Part of Lot 218 on MCH4901 and Part of Lot 220 on SP185042 and situated at 351A & 351B Esplanade, Hervey Bay

Dear Community,
I wish to advise I am AGAINST and OPPOSED to the Proposed Development Application to Council by Enzo Andreuzzi for Enzo’s on the Beach.

Jeanette MaynesBeing a local since 1978 I just love our gorgeous foreshores and simplistic lifestyle.

It’s Awesome to see the locals, national and international tourists come together using the lawn, playground and park for relaxing, reading, exercising (cricket, frisbee, football plus Personal Training businesses), families with toddlers / children, takeaway lunch and dinner meals from local business outlets, group picnics, Council BBQ’s all enjoying the quiet beachside atmosphere and ocean views from the lawns.

When I found out one week ago from a local business owner about the development application, I instantly thought WOW, How Exciting, I’m more than happy for progress and thought modernizing the cafe would be FANTASTIC!!! (Good bye eyesore shipping container!)

Upon walking over and looking at the plans I noticed the cafe would be extending right into the middle of the park and lawn (now I understand why the children’s basketball court was removed) and be developed into a multi level / double storey function centre right in front of my home. There goes my sea view and breeze plus that of many of the other residents in my resort complex and many of the other business owners or landlords leasing their properties on the Scarness Esplanade.

When speaking to Enzo face to face about this after a meeting he advised he didn’t care and will be going two storey. I said fair enough but I will do whatever I can to stop the second level.

Myself as the Vice President of the Scarness Action Group feels the President (Ezno is currently in this position) should represent and be conscious and considerate of all of the Scarness businesses and residents best interests including success, growth, lifestyle, happiness, well-being, financial gain / profit  not solely his own.

For those of you that are unaware of how ferocious and destructive the constant erosion is at Enzo’s I have attached some images below I took Australia Day Jan 2013.
I’ve lost count of the number of times the Council have added more sand and added more rocks, pictured here on the beach in Sept / Oct 2013.
Here is also a movie I took from Australia Day Jan 2013 of the ocean –
How is this a suitable and safe place to build? 

There is also a severe problem in the area with parking which the council is very aware of affecting every single business owner plus residents trying to do their shopping, doesn’t make sense to add to this problem. I see illegal parking on the grass everyday, even Enzo himself.

Neighbouring businesses are also extremely concerned about noise (I personally like to listen to the sea) and alcohol / liquor licensing especially being so close to a children’s playground and Council caravan park. The Beach House Hotel was just rebuilt so we already have a huge function room and licensed venue on the Esplanade. We don’t need two with in a 150 meters.

The area is zoned as “Open Space”, it’s a park, get it?!
Applying to change the zoning from “Open Space”, to “Food and Drink Outlet and Ancillary Function Facility; and shop (outdoor sport and recreation equipment hire and associated retail good), I think you are confusing the beautiful public foreshore “Open Space” zone for all business and community members to enjoy at their leisure with that of a commercial shopping centre / food outlet application / pub license solely for your own profit!

There has been some construction in the car park today. I went and had a chat to the boys, it appears Ergon is putting in new three phase power to Enzo’s, plus removing the pole in front of his building (under Council direction they stated)?
The application is not even approved so why do this?
And who pays for this? Tax payers opps I mean Council?

Fraser Coast Chronicle -“ANOTHER manager at Fraser Coast Opportunities has quit the tourism and economic body, days after publicly supporting the Enzo’s on the Beach development application….. The cafe is owned by Enzo Andreuzzi, whose wife Danielle works alongside Mr Cornelius as the marketing manager at FCO……It is understood that numerous small businesses in the Scarness precinct are opposed to the Enzo’s development, on the grounds that they themselves will lose business and that the facility may encourage drunken behaviour and result in vandalism. This is an incredibly narrow view which Fraser Coast Opportunities fundamentally disagrees with.”  …. full story HERE!
Thanks for letting us know what you think of the Scarness businesses Fraser Coast Opportunities!!

ANYWAY AFTER SOME RESEARCH, GUIDANCE, EXPERT ADVICE AND INVESTIGATION I HAVE SUBMITTED THE BELOW OBJECTION TO COUNCIL. ANYONE IS FREE TO COPY, USE THIS INFORMATION, RESUBMIT THEMSELVES TO COUNCIL OR DO THEIR OWN FURTHER RESEARCH BASED ON IT…..

I certainly hope the “Boys Club” Fraser Coast Regional Council, Fraser Coast Opportunities, Enzo and all involved with this Proposed Development Application are being honest and transparent with the Fraser Coast Community.

SUBMISSION AGAINST DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION – MCU-141028  

8th October, 2014
Chief Executive Office
Fraser Coast Regional Council
PO Box 1943,
HERVEY BAY Qld 4655 

Dear Lisa,

RE:       SUBMISSION AGAINST DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION – MCU-141028
Development Application Seeking Development Permit for Material Change of Use

– Food and Drink Outlet and ancillary Function Facility; and Shop (Outdoor sport and recreation equipment hire and associated retail goods) over Land described as Lot 219 on SP166253, Part of Lot 218 on MCH4901 and Part of Lot 220 on SP185042 and situated at 351A & 351B Esplanade, Hervey Bay

Please accept this letter as a properly made submission under Section 305 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 opposing the above development application for material change of use (i.e. “the above development application”).

The grounds relied on in making this submission objecting to the above development application and the facts and circumstances supporting these grounds of objection include the following:

  1. The development application fails to identify all the land that is the subject of the proposed development for material change of use. 

Facts and Circumstances relied on in this submission for Ground No. 1 include the following:  The development application identifies the subject site as being Lot 209 on SP166253, Lease C in Lot 220 on SP185042 and Lease D in Lot 218 on MCH4901.  It should be noted that the aerial photograph in the report is deceptive as it is captured obliquely and as a result it appears closer to the road than a vertical photograph would more accurately.  In any regard, plan SP254557 provides connections to cadastral boundaries across the nearby (20.1 metre wide) gazetted road which confirms that none of the subject site as identified in the development application has a direct frontage to the gazetted road known as The Esplanade.  It would appear that Lease D in Lot 218 on MCH4901 is the closest part of the identified site to The Esplanade but Lease D is still approximately 18 metres from this road.  All access to the proposed development is therefore required to traverse part Lot 220 on SP185042 which is outside of Lease C in Lot 220 on SP185042 or any other part of the site identified in the development application.  Contrary to advice from Council, Lot 220 on SP185042 is State Land and along with Lot 223 on CP850484, Lot 128 on MCH2468, Lot 218 on 4901 and Lot 227 on SP235162, comprise reserve allocated for “public” purposes and for which Council is a trustee for such purposes but has not authority to act as trustee for other purposes under the Land Act 1994.

Case law has confirmed that the use of the land for development includes the access for that use to a public road and the like.  The above development application did not include all of the access as part of the proposed land use.   All access to The Esplanade will need to traverse part of Lot 220 on SP185042 which is outside of Lease C in Lot 220 on SP185042 or any other part of the site identified in the development application.

The above development application is therefore considered invalid. 

  1. The development application has failed to include information on the proposed design of the alterations to the existing building which is necessary for both the public and Council to properly assess such a development proposal especially considering that the subject site is totally surrounded by State land allocated for public purposes.                                                                                  

Facts and Circumstances relied on in this submission for Ground No. 2 include the following:  The subject site is a lease by a private party over State land and completely surrounded by public land and in a node on the foreshore that both the Council and the applicant have acknowledged as being of local and regional significance for various economic and recreational reasons.  It is unfortunate that the development application as placed on public display does not include information on the proposed design of the development that the public and Council would normally require in order to make an informed assessment.  This information includes, but is by no means limited to the following:-

  • the floor areas for existing and proposed new buildings;
  • maximum building height for existing and proposed building above existing ground level;
  • location of refuse storage;
  • delineated any existing (lawful) use areas external to the building as determined under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009;
  • proposed vehicular access and manoeuvring areas for services vehicles as well as any vehicular access by staff and/or patrons;
  • access between the nearest disabled parking space and the proposed entry into the development;
  • proposed location of any air-conditioning plant assuming that this must be within the approved leased area; and
  • proposed location of any heating gas storage.

The applicant has failed to clearly quantify the existing and proposed floor areas, location or refuse storage and maximum height above natural ground level for existing of new buildings, which among other things, are normally required for a properly made development application.
Even though the applicant had confirmed in IDAS Form 5 that such information submitted, it has not been made available to the public with the original information or the change application during the public notification period.  This failure is of serious concern and has disadvantaged the public in being able to make an informed assessment.

Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney

LEON NACSON, JEANETTE MAYNES, REID TRACY

LEON NACSON, JEANETTE MAYNES, REID TRACY

Over the past weekend I had the amazing opportunity of attending the Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney as I had been fortunate due to the help and support of many voting for me and had WON a free ticket to the event.
Talk about Awesome, I learnt so much and had many questions and thoughts answered in relation to my self-published soon to be BEST SELLING ‘4 Week Program!’ plus my marketing jeanette maynes hao house writers seminarplan, my platforms, my websites and the way I am implementing my goals and book / program within the community.
The energy and vibration in the room was electric and I met so many wonderful friendly like minded people. I hung out with a lovely lady and made a new friend also a ticket winner being Melissa Gibson a psychic, we got along fabulously – the Butterfly Whisperer.
Now to finalise my Synopsis to present to Hay House!
Someone (or maybe more than one person) who attended the seminar will WIN a publishing package with them; I could be the next best selling author accelerating my passion to “Get Australia Motivated!”. I hope so as I can feel it within my whole being!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and having a photo with the authors in order (the 1st four even before the seminar started!) as per my Law of Attraction photo print out (pretty powerful – reminds me of my Law of Attraction Donald Trump picture here) and the rest throughout the two days. I was also on the print out as a featured author as I will be speaking at the seminar in the future (L.O.A. at work). I even had a photo taken on stage with my book to assist my Law of Attraction processes! All the authors had such inspiring stories and were great at public speaking.
The images in the gallery include:

–       REID TRACY President and CEO of Hay House Publishing the largest publisher of self empowerment books, cds, dvds and empowering live events in the world.
–       LEON NACSON Managing Director of Hay House Australia, and the author of nine books. His current International Best Seller ‘A Stream of Dreams’ has been translated into four languages.

PAM GROUT

Some of the Awesome quotes from the weekend:

-       “The more narrow your niche is, the less followers you need to be successful.” – Reid Tracy
-       “The point of a platform is for you to connect with people who care about what you have to say. This takes time, there are no shortcuts.” – Reid Tracy
-       “Focus in on one core audience that you’re trying to build. Know who you’re trying to reach. Ask people why they’re being referred to you to try to figure out who this is. Build an avatar for your audience based on gender, age, interests.” – Reid Tracy
-       “Books are intimate things. They’re one of the only things apart from your husband/wife/partner that you take to bed with you.” – Reid Tracy   (or if you are me it’s your Laptop to listen to Reid and Louise Hay lol)
–       “Ask yourself, what makes my book so different? So interesting? Don’t write to be a best seller. Write for and from your heart, not your wallet. Write something you want to be remembered by.” – Leon Nacson
-       “The hard part about writing a book is getting people to read it.” – Reid Tracy

After the seminar I ran 11.5km around Sydney for some exercise and even managed to get my weekly stair runs in at the ‘Oprah’ House,  proudly promoting the Fraser Coast Health & Fitness Community Action Group.

We want to share with you our enthusiasm, motivation, encouragement, support, our life experience on this journey, our extensive knowledge and most of all to show you the Power of the Mind!

photo 1Thursday the 14th August saw the launch of Fraser Coast Health and Fitness Community Action Group. After months of us talking about ideas to convey our message to the Fraser Coast broader community and also realising that those in the health and fitness industry already proactive are still only just talking about what should or shouldn’t be done. We couldn’t see where a proactive interaction with the community was happening. So we are making this interaction come to life and now a real reality. With keeping to our way of
10603541_679985385425191_7122032113163858206_nthinking, we will focus purely on the positive thoughts, actions and processes. Nothing negative here, do not want to attract it. ‘Law of Attraction’ working here. What you think, you will achieve, what you want, you will do!

LAW OF ATTRACTION
“We MUST Visualise – See your life as you want it. You must visualise this in your mind and see it as already completed to have success! See your life, your home, your figure, your fitness, your finances, your relationships, your education, your goals as already being accomplished! The law of attraction doesn’t know or care whether you’re imagining something or whether it is real. The law of attraction receives those images as though you were actually living them, and it must return them to you.”

A quote of some sort here perhaps STATISTICALLY: The FRASER COAST has NINE of the FATTEST suburbs in Queensland! plus 70% of the Wide Bay is Obese or Overweight! The Wide Bay region also has one of the highest levels of diabetes in Queensland. We want to make a change to the excessively high statistics on poor health within our community.

GOAL # 1 – REDUCE OBESITY ON THE 10559742_680988198658243_3286547152721531347_nFRASER COAST FROM 70% TO 50% WITH POSITIVE AND GOAL ORIENTATED INITIATIVES INTURN DRAMATICALLY LOWERING DIABETES!

Our objective is combat the 70% obesity that plagues the Fraser Coast. So seeing as the population is 100,000 people of the Fraser Coast that’s 70,000 overweight or obese people that require our help.
We have a desire and are passionate about 10599128_683753285048401_6702237048320214612_nreaching out to the 70% overweight population, but we cannot do it on our own. This is why we need everyone to become involved at the same level of passion. We want to provide knowledge, education, events, classes, activities and healthy food choices along with retail shopping for 70% of the population that needs our help. The services we seek collectively are already taking care of their own health and fitness so we need to join forces and pass this vital life skill on to those that do not know where to start.
We need all modalities of massage therapists, personal trainers, life coaches, councillors, gyms, doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, naturopaths, USQ and TAFE to teach courses, healthy restaurants, fitness instructors, sports clothing retail outlets, sports clubs and the list goes on.

With 70,000 people to help there is no need to compete with each other, we need to become a team and promote each other’s services. The weight loss journey is ongoing and varied in every individual, it doesn’t stop when you are fit, it turns into a life style. We both personally choose to pay to utilise a gym, buy healthy choices at food outlets, pay for much needed massages, pay to participate in local sports events / runs, pay for barges to go run on Fraser island and pay for beer afterwards, pay for new runners, sports clothes and equipment – this is all money we are injecting back into the local community via our healthy lifestyle every week. So could 70,000 other members of the community creating jobs, profit, more energy and more productivity.
Together we will network and unite with each other to empower the Fraser Coast Health & Fitness Community Action Group.

JAIL 2 JUSTICE WALK – DERRYN HINCH

More info here, here and here from after the walk.

10361997_10152317452388673_2832631163909102899_n“Until I decided to walk 180km from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne  in my Jail 2 Justice campaign the longest I had walked in years was in Hervey Bay – from the caravan park to the pier and back.

That’s why it is somehow fitting that there is a Hervey Bay connection this weekend with my campaign through your Enzo’s to the Pier and return. I am honoured  that Jeanette Maynes suggested to me that her free community walk should be a 10km Queensland celebration of ours.

The goal of Jail 2 Justice is twofold. To honour the families of the victims of crime. To ‘walk a mile in their shoes’. And to draw attention to my petition for a national public register of convicted sex offenders. When I was released from jail in March we had 43,000  signatures. That figure has grown by more than 80,000  to 115,000.

The campaign, and the walk,  have a strong Queensland  connection. On the final day, next Monday, we walk from Brunswick – where Jill Meagher was killed – to Parliament House in Melbourne to present the petition  to  Victorian  Premier Denis Napthine.

Joining me on that final stage will be Daniel Morcombe’s  mum and dad, Denise and Bruce Morcombe. This amazing couple have endorsed my campaign.

Thanks for taking part this weekend. I believe Australian  parents are angry, frustrated and scared about their children’s futures. A new national law, outlined in my petition, is a start.”

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch petition 3“Help… Please!

THIS IS AN APPEAL to police, to the courts, to the child welfare authorities, to the so-called protectors of this community. It is an appeal to sanity. And if I don’t do this, I will never be able to forgive myself if something awful happens to another child. And, believe me, it will.” – Derryn Hinch

Sweet and Sour – Saturday, 17 May 2014

THERE WERE MIXED FEELINGS on a chilly May dawn today when we started our ten-day Jail 2 Justice walk from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne.
Positive vibes that we were trying to do something for a community wracked with anger, frustration and fear over what’s been going on in our courts and parole system.
But also the underlying truth that many of our supporters, including most of those walking today, have personal stories to tell and all of them sad ones.
They are the people we walked for today. A symbolic ‘walk a mile in their shoes’ event to show that Australians do care and want to do something about it.
About 45 of us started out from Langi Kal Kal this morning. At the end of the first ten kilometres I stole a quote from a baseball movie: ‘Build it and they will come’. – Derryn Hinch

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch petitionPLEASE SIGN THE PETITION HERE!!! -
….In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims’ rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release…… We, the undersigned, insist, that by the end of 2014, the Australian governments, state and federal, through their attorneys-general, unite to publish an ongoing national public register of all convicted sex offenders similar to Megan’s Law in the United States.

WE SURVIVED – EURONG 60KM CHALLENGE!!!

NOW THIS IS LIVING!

I’m happy to report we made it on foot from Kingfisher Bay Resort to Eurong Resortreturn with quite a few laughs!

Having run and completed the Noosa Half Marathon (21km), strolled around Noosa National Park  and climbed Mt Cooroora at Pomona the weekend prior  –  myself,  Susie & Carol decided we needed an even bigger challenge to celebrate our success!

Travelling on the dawn Barge from River Heads we set of at 8am with our overnight gear, food & 3L of water for Eurong – hiking across the width of Fraser Island.

The diversity of the terrain is magnificent, breath taking and so naturally beautiful always changing from bush tracks leaving Kingfisher resort to soft sandy tracks, steep slopes and hills the whole way (Sleeper Hill!), refreshing tropical rainforest, back to scrub and bush, then a surf beach at Eurong!
We had meal breaks at Lake Mckenzie and Central Station, pulled in at Basin Lake for a look. and thoroughly enjoyed a hot shower, buffet dinner, beers and warm sleep at Eurong!

On day two we were up at 5am, after coffee with headlamps attached we set off at 5:45am. Carol was bravely first up front on spider patrol with my walking pole positioned vertical ready for any frontal assault. We all took turns to lead and set the pace.

Check out the spider web I ran into and took out with my head 5cm from the spider on day one when leading!!! Specsavers Anyone? (images below)

Time taken was 5:50mins on the 1st day not including breaks (time with breaks 7hrs)  and 5:18mins (time with breaks 6hrs)  on the way back the next day! We Smashed it, even though legs and shoulders were alittle stiff on day two for the return. We probably ran about 12km of our overall total distance, being easy runs on the downhills.

A big thank you to Susie & Carol for coming and helping me achieve my goal to hike to Eurong again, it’s sensational to have such fun and like minded company! You guys are machines, and just did amazing, with an awesome level of fitness, well done!

56+ km’s = 5,400 calories ✔

We are definitely going again to Eurong, so stay tuned for the date everyone to come along!
…. I’m also currently planning 90km Challenge on the Great Walk!
…. and will be doing another 20km Challenge to Lake McKenzie within the next two months.
Keep up to date for the latest adventures on facebook!

I WALK THE TALK!

Learn to be HAPPY in 4 Weeks!
“Good habits are as addictive as bad habits, and a lot more Rewarding!”
https://jeanettemaynes.com/the-story/

This has made me so passionate about helping others be happy! Since the start of 2006 I have researched and been reprogramming my thoughts, behaviours, self talk and beliefs plus implemented new and exciting fitness, eating and lifestyle habits.

Beforehand, I had very negative self talk, plus unhealthy habits – junk food, smoking and drinking. You really don’t love yourself when you are slowly trying to kill yourself – one bite, puff or sip at a time!

I had lost 16 kilo’s in my early 20’s to get back to a healthy weight range (69.9 kg down to 54kg) but did that while still drinking, smoking and eating junk food! My behaviours didn’t change and I eventually put that weight back on due to these negative and self destructive habits and self sabotage from a very WEAK MIND!

I hit 30 and said, “THAT IS IT! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” … BE ACCOUNTABLE! Stop blaming others, your situations, made up negative beliefs and your past! YOU are in control of YOUR life and BAM, I CHOSE TO CHANGE and well that was it!!

noosa halfI went cold turkey on the cigarettes, stating I am never spending another cent on this sh*t or putting one near my mouth ever again! AND I HAVEN’T. To do this I had to get off the grog. I did 42 days straight without a drink till I felt I had enough self control to enjoy a beer! I also said there is no way I’m putting on weight like everyone else while I give up smoking SO THERE IT STARTED! I grabbed a piece of paper, pencil, a calorie book and started writing everything I ate and kept under a certain calorie limit each day (thank god we now have speedy online websites to do this for us). I lost SIX kilograms straight up when I gave up smoking and then a further NINE kilograms as I learnt about calorie control, portion sizes and the importance of regular exercise.

I now run my own successful multi award winning graphic and website design business (DESIGN HOUSE), have climbed to Base Camp at Mt Everest, run the Great Wall of China Marathon, rode a Harley for many years and now realise and believe with all my heart that ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE IN LIFE FOR ANYONE!

photoshoot blue

Today I’m extremely motivated, positive, passionate, driven and happy, which people comment on all the time. I don’t tolerate negativity, I have absolutely no concern what others think of me; that is their business, I do not lower my standards for anyone, I do not enable poor me talk and behaviour from others, nor do I associate with people that do not fully support me and lift me higher.

Working casual hours at a gym while finalising my Personal Trainer study made me realise people just have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA ABOUT THE CALORIES in food, correct portion sizes and how much energy is required to burn off what you eat, hence about 70% of Wide Bay residents(my home area) in Queensland being in the UNHEALTHY or OBESE RANGE.

Australia is today ranked as one of the fattest nations in the developed world and around 63% of Australian adults were classified as overweight or obese in 2012.

Therefore since 2006 beginning extensive study, research and implementation I decided to write the4 Week Program‘ SO OTHERS CAN TEACH THEMSELVES TO FEEL AND DO THE SAME, by being ACCOUNTABLE for themselves, as everyone deserves to be happy, and if I can help one person or preferably ONE TOWN at a time that will make me happy!

I always THINK BIG so my GOAL is to start with my HOME TOWN / REGION (before going National) and see how much weight we can lose on my 4 Week Program!’ as a community supporting each other. NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE CONTROL BACK OF YOUR LIFE!

It’s SIMPLE: Nothing more, nothing less -
If calorie intake exceeds calorie expenditure, we gain weight.
If calorie intake is less than calorie expenditure we lose weight.
If calorie intake equals calorie expenditure, our weight remains the same.

We MUST Visualise - See your life as you want it. You must visualise this in your mind and see it as already completed to have success! See your life, your figure, your fitness, your goals as already being accomplished!

We will work on the most important aspect being the MIND. If you have a STRONG MIND everything else just falls into place! The corporation for Louise L. Hay, Hay House founder and best-selling author of inspirational, self-help books including my favourite ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ have given me written permission to reference this book in my program as it is profoundly inspirational, powerful plus mind and life altering!

Lifestyles 1000 zThe 4 Week Program is NOT a ‘DIET’, we need to eliminate that word from our vocabulary!
It is the correct and only way that works, clean healthy eating and regular exercise. It is SCIENTIFIC, MATHEMATICAL and FOOLPROOF; so if you follow the instructions and program exactly you CANNOT FAIL! The 4 Week Program provides knowledge you will be able to APPLY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE AND UNDERSTAND!

This program should be a must and taught to senior students in all schools so they are equipped for the real world, they can then teach their own children and this would completely change the next generation and the next and so on.

There is a meal plan (approved by an Accredited Practising Dietitian) and also an exercise plan that I have designed as a qualified Personal Trainer and Life Coach. You must follow both plans. The exercise plan includes strength, cardio and stretch programs that people can also do at home or on holidays if they don’t currently attend a gym or exercise classes.

10km ChallengeTHIS IS A PROGRAM YOU CAN START ANYTIME, PERFORM ANYWHERE ANYTIME, NOT JUST FOR THE 4 WEEKS, IT’S FOREVER …. but 4 weeks straight of being strict and exact will shotgun initial weight loss and results … potentially up to a KILO A WEEK OR MORE!

What’s Involved:
1. Develop Self-Love & Self-Esteem!
2. Understand Calories & Your Daily Food Intake!
3. Meal Plan; Incorporate Your Favourite Meals!
4. Calorie Expenditure = Weight Loss!
5. Exercise Plan, Fitness & Heart Rate Monitoring!
6. Start Regular Goal Setting & Adventures!

If a girl like me can make a change and inspire others, imagine if everyone else made a change and inspired others! IT’S ONLY 4 WEEKS, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE!!!
Our Life Goal is to be Happy!

4 Week Program Half Cover 2014

Every day is perfect for setting goals or starting fresh

jeanette maynes dayman parkRESEARCH shows that 44% of Australians have a goal to lose weight in 2014.

But Hervey Bay’s Jeanette Maynes believes health and fitness should be a part of everyday life, not just as a new year resolution.

The personal trainer says every day was a perfect time for setting goals or starting fresh.

“Keep planning and keep achieving, it keeps the motivation flowing.

“Every day is a new exciting beginning, a change to change.”

Ms Maynes said there was “no excuse” for recent statistics that ranks Queensland at the top of the obesity scales.

“When you talk about obesity everyone goes off their nut trying to justify it,” she said.

“I think it time to start addressing the topic… people need to become accountable for their behaviours.”

Ms Maynes said the key to achieving a healthier lifestyle was having a strong mind and 100% focus.

“Write it down,” she said.

“You must clearly visualise in your mind that you have achieved the goal before you even start.

“Break it down into small steps that you can achieve each day.

“Exercise does change your life so make time for it in your routine – it really is worth it.”

Anyone who wants to start fresh has the opportunity to take part in Ms Maynes’ free 10km community challenge on Saturday, January 18, leaving from Enzo’s to the Urangan Pier and back again.

“I support people to get out of their comfort zone and walk a little further than they usually would.

“It’s all in the mind, anyone can walk 10km, the body does what the mind tells it.

“Once people realise that with a strong focused mind they can do anything, the possibilities in life are endless.”

4 Week Program $25

Ms Maynes has also written a four-week healthy eating and exercise program e-book, which is available at www.jeanettemaynes.com.au/4-week-program/

Jeanette’s top tips

• Do not let anyone distract you. Do not eat rubbish because someone tells you to. Explain to others you have a goal and will not stray from it. Remove or avoid anyone or anything that does not completely support and encourage your goal.

• Feel proud each day that each small step is a positive change to achieving your goal and inner happiness.

• Have a strong mind. The first three weeks of starting a healthy lifestyle and fitness regime will be the toughest. Forming a new habit takes about 21 days. If that habit is clean eating and exercise you have just created a habit that your body will be thanking you for the rest of your life.

What is Wrong with People!

Dear Lawrence Wyville,

After speaking to our Local State Member it had been brought to my attention you are wanting to obtain grant money for some sort of Aboriginal food business project.

Could you please pay the $787.06 for the logo and business card artwork you requested me to design and that you have been ordered to pay me by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal as per the Judgement below.

I’d hate to have to go to the media about the dishonest people that don’t pay their bills approaching the government for grants.

Please let me know when you intend to pay so I can calculate the interest to date.

Your immediate attention to this matter would be appreciated.

I happy to remove this story when you have settled your account.

Lawrence Wyville Judgement
